Pretty in Pink

Hello Crafters

Hope your having a lovely bank holiday, and what a scorcher to boot! Celebrating that we have sunshine on a bank holiday, can you believe it?! 🙂

Just popping in with a quick share of a floral surprise for my Aunt’s birthday.

  1. Lawn Fawn – Scalloped Box Pop Up, Stitched Rectangles Stackables,
  2. MFT – Stitched Flowers
  3. Spellbinders – Die D-Lites Sentiments One
  4. Cut & Make – Best Wishes (Purchased from The Range)
  5. Unknown – Tiny Bows die

I love sending these type of cards, as they are a gift and card in one, and I like to think that whoever receives it has a smile on opening it.

Hope you have a lovely week

Long Time No See…

Hello Crafters

Surprise! I am finally here, and no, I wasn’t abducted by aliens, although I swear I was so busy I almost caught my self coming backwards!

We have been busy decorating and repairing and getting everything ready to sell, and finally, the pictures have been taken, and hopefully (fingers crossed), we shall be onwards and upwards to sell our property.  We have found one too, whilst we were “down south” last week, so just hoping that we can sell this before the other one goes.

Now have I been crafting? Well I have, just not had a minute to share. Have been popping into your blogs from time to time too, just no time to say hello, and do you know, I can’t even remember what I have shared and what not! This ol’ girl is getting forgetful in her old age 🙂 However, this I can share with you as my friend in Canada has now received it.

I wanted to send something floral but not bulky, so I decided on a pop up box, and this was made using Lawn Fawns latest.

Items Used:

It’s a shame the pictures dont do it justice, as the card I used was glittered, like rainbow coloured, but I just couldn’t capture it, probably as the flowers were too small, but it did look very striking when it was finished, and of course fitted in a standard A5 envelope all lovely and flat to post.

Well that’s it for now, and will try to be back again but we now have the happy task of showing people around and trying to pack up what we can live without, so still busy, and like I keep saying, work gets in the way…….

Have a lovely week, see you soon

Crafty Buddy Share – Fairy Pop Up Box

Hello Crafters

Hope you’re having a great week, and the inspiration is free flowing!

As promised in my last post, you can catch up here if you missed it, my craft buddy came a callin’ on Saturday, and as she is such a busy lady, we made the most of our time! We had a great time crafting, chatting and designing.

Yvonne has been crafting a long while but is limited to how much time she gets to make things, as her work is often intensive mentally and physically and long hours, which leaves little time to do what she loves, but she has worked tirelessly to ensure that she has all she needs to make sure by the time she retires, her stash will be all fired up and ready to go! Lovely lady with a great sense of human (has to have to put up with me!), with a big heart.

A while ago I made an exploding box for her birthday, and she absolutely loved it, Fairy Exploding Box.

We were discussing my recent purchase of Marianne Craftables Pop Up Box and we decided to make, would you believe, a fairy pop up box! I have blogged about this die before, but genuinely believe it is worth every penny.

So without further ado, here is her creation and inspiration:

Isn’t that a wonderful little box!

Here’s the items she used:

Well thank you for coming and joining us in our Craft Buddy share.

Have a great week!
